We have a waitlist request for Hawaii for this winter but are points are not yet released so we aren't sure we will get our request. We are coming up on the 6 month mark for our waitlist. How do we release our home week. Typically we release our week when reserving something so this is something we haven't had to figure out. And with all this we still may need to cancel down the road if Hawaii doesn't open. Thanks in advance for helping.

For the wait list request to be filled, you need to have points available. If your home week is still more than a year before check in, then you can't use it for a wait list. You can only borrow from it to reserve something in the next 60 days.

Once you are within a year of your home week, you get your HRPP points and those will be used for a wait list match unless you chose HRPP protection for that contract when setting up wait list.

We have a June week so we are good. Are you saying the wait list would automatically fill if available as we did not chose protection.?

Well we never got our wait list but we got the reservation at Kaanapali. It showed up on line this morning so we were able to grab it. Not sure why the wait list didn't work. Now we wait and see if Hawaii opens by Jan.
